Pakistan’s FM warns of consequences to IEA isolation

Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari wants the world to engage the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) and has warned of dangerous consequences if Afghanistan’s rulers are again isolated.

In an interview with AFP, Zardari cautioned against creating “parallel governance” after the United States, distrustful of the IEA, put Afghanistan’s frozen assets in a professional fund in Switzerland.

“We’ve learned from the past that when we wash our hands and turn our backs, we end up creating unintended consequences and more problems for ourselves,” Zardari said on Tuesday.

“I believe that our concerns of an economic collapse, of an exodus of refugees, of a threat of new recruits for organisations such as ISIS-K and others, outweigh concerns that there may be about their financial institutions,” he added.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had expressed similar views while addressing the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly last week.

The United Nations Security Council is set to meet on Afghanistan on Monday to discuss the appointment of a special envoy for Afghanistan and the results of a recent international meeting on Afghanistan in Doha.

Naseer Ahmed Faiq, Chargé d’Affaires of the Afghanistan Permanent Mission to the UN, said that in this meeting, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will present a report about the appointment of special envoy for Afghanistan and the recent international meeting on Afghanistan in Doha.

Security Council Resolution 2721 in December last year requested that the Secretary-General brief the Security Council on the outcome of consultations within 60 days.

But the Islamic Emirate emphasizes that Afghanistan is not in crisis and with the presence of the United Nations Assistance Mission in the country, there is no need to appoint a new representative.

“As for the special representative, the position of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is very clear and there is no need to appoint a special representative for Afghanistan,” Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, said.

“Afghanistan is a secure country and does not suffer from any crisis and needs international cooperation, but within the framework of the cooperation that existed before. In the presence of UNAMA, all issues between the United Nations and Afghanistan will be resolved.”

“There is no need for a special representative. They should cooperate with the people of Afghanistan. They should not prevent Afghanistan’s progress in the diplomatic field and should not consider Afghanistan a country facing a crisis,” Mujahid added.

The UN Doha meeting on Afghanistan was held last week. IEA declined an invitation to attend the meeting.
